Gene PerlaBill's Waltz ... CD
PM, 2008. New Copy ... $11.99
A really beautiful album from bassist Gene Perla – quite different than his better-known funk sessions of the 70s, but equally wonderful in its own sort of way! The approach of the album is pretty unique – as Perla takes as the core a set of drum recordings he made with Elvin Jones in ... read more CD

Carlo PesFirst Look ... CD
Cometa (Italy), 1980. New Copy ... $19.99
A small group session from guitarist Carlo Pes – originally recorded for the Cometa sound library series, but actually more of a straight jazz record overall!

Croatia (Croatia), 2004. New Copy ... $9.99
Bosko Petrovic may not be a big name in jazz here in the US, but he's easily one of the greatest musicians in Eastern Europe of the past few decades – a Croatian vibist with a really rich, chromatic sound!

Bosko PetrovicRound Midnight ... CD
Croatia (Croatia), 2002. New Copy ... $9.99
A really sweet set that has the vibes of Bosko Petrovic coming into play with larger arrangements from the RTV Big Band – all with a soulful, sensuous sound that's a lot like records that have Milt Jackson working with a larger group! Petrovic's got a similar sense of color and tone, but is ... read more CD

Pieces Of A DreamBout Dat Time (with bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI/Soulmusic.com (UK), 1989. New Copy ... $8.99
Much more of a soul-based effort than usual from Pieces Of A Dream – a tight set of hook-heavy grooves with a sharp late 80s vibe! There's still some of the jazz of the group's roots in place – often heard on the keyboards – but the focus has shifted most strongly to vocals, and ... read more CD

Pony PoindexterPony's Express (plus bonus track) ... CD
Epic (UK), 1963. New Copy ... $8.99

One of the rarest free jazz albums of the European 60s scene – a set that was originally intended for release by Sonet Records, pressed up in test records for the musicians, then denied release because they felt that they'd already moved past the performance!
